Hello Stars by Alena Pitts with Wynter Pitts is the first in the new series, Lena in the Spotlight. This series stars Lena as the oldest child in her family. Lena on the advice of her friend Savannah has entered a contest to meet her favorite star Mallory Winston and even though in the video entry she made she had a piece of candy between her teeth she won. The prize not only included meeting Mallory but also living for the summer in Hollywood starring in a role in a movie. Lena soon finds that making a movie is more work than she anticipated and spending the whole summer in California away from her friends is more lonely than she thought. Lena learns to make new friends in California and trust God to guide her along the way. Lena becomes friends with Mallory as well as Kay B who helps her get ready for her scenes. Lena learns to work hard and enjoy the fun as it comes. Most of all Lena learns to relax and trust God to lead her toward the plan He has set for her life.
I enjoyed this book and think that any tween girl would enjoy reading this book. This book has a Christian message as this Christian family learns to live in California and follow the path that God has set for them. The book is about a 12 year old and is written so that 12 year olds could easily read it. There is no violence nor sexual content.
I received this book from Handlebar Publishing for this review.
